Lip Tricks for Fabulous Lips


Some of us have less perfect lips than others. Those who have thin ones crave for the luscious full lips and resort to collagen injections to achieve pouty lips. Short of popping up at a dermatologist’s clinic to get a short, there are plenty of tricks of the trade to help make your lips more sensual looking. Here are a few tips:

The best lip color fixative? A thin layer of lip balm. This holds lip color like crazy as it heals and protects.

Applying powder to lips also give lip color or gloss something to cling to for longer, smoother wear.

For longer wear, blot lips after applying lipstick to set color and remove excess. Add a thin layer of loose or pressed powder, then apply color again.

Turn up the shine with a thin layer of clear lip gloss over lipstick or alone.

For high-voltage shine and color, try a lip lacquer over lipstick or alone.

For fuller, poutier lips, spotlight lip gloss right in the center of your mouth.

Keep matte lip color from drying your lips – use a lip primer or lip color fixative before you apply the matte color.

For evening special effects, apply a sheer lip gloss in silver, gold or an iridescent shade over the lip color.


For thin lips:

Thin lips are never bad, girls, but giving them some oomph is a little difficult if you don’t have the right makeup tips for thin lips!

Your best buddy has to be any lip primer. Just a little dab and rub in can honestly make sure that your lipstick, lip stain and even your lip gloss stays flawless all night!

 For thick lips:

Apply your usual lipstick to your lips, but use a slightly lighter shade down the center of your upper and bottom lip. Be sure to blend well. You can also use a creamy highlighter pencil instead. Use blush in a similar color to make your lipstick look matte.

Lipstick is one cosmetic that can awesomely transfer a girl into a diva. Agree? But at the same time, it can also give you a ‘clown-y’ look if worn in a wrong manner.

Do not over apply your lipstick to avoid lipstick staining your teeth. Always dab a tissue over the extra lipstick from your lips after application. Mainly dab the inner corner of your lips to get rid of extra lipstick.

Red lipsticks are an instant way to get that sexy glamorous look! If you are a pro in wearing red lipstick, I do not want to say you how to wear. But if you are a beginner, always start with a lipstick brush for a light application. Wear a red that suits your skin undertone – This is very much important! Wearing a wrong red lipstick might give you a opposite-to-sexy (unattractive!) look and moreover it might show your teeth yellow! Do you wan’t that? So please be careful while choosing a perfect red for you.

With such easy to follow tips on applying lipstick, you are ready to give someone a smooch!
